A message occurred to Kang Seol.
[New information is obtained.]
[The unexpected adventure ‘Midnight’s Uninvited Guest’ occurs.]
Adventure 29-2. ‘Uninvited Guest in the Night’
You escaped safely from the collapse of the smuggling route. Nevenia’s pursuers are having difficulty tracking because they are blocked by thick rocks.
During this time, you covered a considerable distance using the Nogurs Mountains as your route. However, because the group’s physical strength was not enough, they had to spend the night here.
Considering Adeline’s upcoming pursuers, you should not have lost any time, but you decided that this exile was not a goal that could be achieved in a hurry.
Is this the price of such cruelty?
In the middle of the night, a person covered in the night dew appeared.
Goal: Eliminate uninvited guests.
This adventure is a surprise adventure.
This adventure is a dangerous one.
The current remaining time is “unknown,”
“I’m not interested in that kind of sound.”
“I’m interested in other sounds instead.”
Shuro’s severed arms were glued together. The shadow between the cut surfaces acted as a sticky adhesive.
“A scream or something… more like a crow. Who are you? “This is my first time seeing you.”
“Isn’t this just the first time? I don’t know who you are either. But…”
Kang Seol spoke calmly as she watched the severed arm being slowly reattached.
“I think I know where you’re coming from.”
Snowfall said as she slowly turned her head to check if Liona and Chadorf were okay.
“It must be Yeongsaenggyo.”
Shuro was surprised.
“her? How did know?”
“If you find it difficult to understand, you are a member of the Eternal Life Church.”
“Where is such sophistry? I don’t understand….”
“I don’t really get along with the Yeongsaeng Church. As expected, Yeongsaenggyo was correct. “Did Bria send you?”
In an instant, Shuro’s expression suddenly changed.
It was like looking at a lake that had cooled down rapidly.
“… Don’t call me that name carelessly.”
“You got it right this time too. “Thank you for the easy-to-understand response.”
“How does someone like you know Bria?”
“If we have to be honest, we are enemies. But are you going to keep talking about it?”
Shuro created a great sword in the darkness.
“No… no, if you and Bria have a bad relationship… you should quickly erase their existence from the world.”
“Yes, we too have a long way to go. Let’s begin.”
“What a condescending thing to do… car!”
A speed that Chadorp could not keep up with. Shuro had no doubts about the trivial victory this time.
‘It looks like he’s a summoner, so first take that strange crow mask…’
But at some point, Karuna was standing in front of him.
The speed was so fast that it felt as if Shuro had not only caught up with his own speed, but had actually overtaken him.
“Where are you looking?”
Karuna’s kick was like a whip, kicking Shuro in the abdomen and sending him flying.
Shuro flew away, breaking the tree from the impact.
While the battle between Snowfall and Shuro continued like this, one side was busy providing first aid.
“What should I do… Chadorf! Chardorf! “Come to your senses!”
“Don’t leave me alone! Chardorf!”
After shaking a few more times, Chardorf showed signs of waking up.
“Wow princess… I’m sorry. In the end, you followed me and lost your life.”
“yes? What are you talking about! Who dies! “Isn’t anyone dead?”
“Yeah…? What is that…”
Chardorf was dumbfounded as to what was going on and was about to get up when Count Brispin came running from far away.
“Huh… Huh… What’s going on?”
“There was an attack.”
“What… is this situation? “What is the situation, princess?”
“The crow is now…”
As Liona turned her head to explain the situation, an inexplicable scene unfolded before her eyes.
I expected the crow to be struggling as well, perhaps because of the overwhelming skill difference that Shuro showed against Chardorf, but the situation was quite the opposite.
“What is this….”
“Ahhhh! “It hurts!”
The black knight wielded by Snowfall had completely overwhelmed Shuro.
He was literally pounding Shuro’s whole body like he was being treated like a child.
Shadows soon emitted from his body and healed his wounds, but Shuro’s complexion was not good.
“Haaah… It’s pretty good, isn’t it?”
“You’re not quite right.”
“Don’t fuss… I don’t even know the topic…”
The energy felt in Shuro’s body was definitely the energy of a shadow.
Snowfall had some doubts about him.
‘But what is that unusual body?’
It was an unprecedented idea that a shadow could continuously heal wounds.
‘Youngsaenggyo… Have you created something troublesome again?’
Shuro tilted his head and said this.
“It was good to listen to Bria. Now let me do it right.”
Two shadows the size of adult men were created on either side of Shuro.
“These are Biran and Bidon. “Say hello.”
A monster with a torn mouth and unruly teeth. It looked like a mixture of hatred.
“Biran bidon. “Get ready.”
The situation suddenly became 3:1.
Karuna’s sword trembled slightly.
And his energy is burning like it’s exploding.
[Karunaga enters the third stage of the moonlight full moon.]
Shuro was startled by Karuna’s sudden change in spirit, but he acted calmly because he hadn’t even revealed all his moves yet.
Biran’s arm aimed at Karuna, but he accidentally hit the ground.
Just as Karuna was about to seize that opportunity and attack.
Biran stared at Karuna.
[Biran uses contempt.]
[Target is far from the rain.]
The bizarre chuck is acting and Karuna is pushed and his posture was disturbed for a while.
Likewise, Vidon looked at Karuna.
There There There There there is
feeling of someone pushing you from behind
Karuna tried to resist by spinning her body, but she couldn’t help but be pushed away.
Shuro’s great sword struck Karuna’s breastplate.
[Hopeful predator swallows the shock.]
[Hopeful predator is in an empty stomach.]
[Hopeful predator digests all the shock.]
“… What is this again?”
Karuna widens the distance while the Hope Predator absorbs damage.
“It’s really a foul…”
It wasn’t an easy opponent, so Kang Seol tried to get Karen to join in.
But Karuna reached out and stopped him.
Unlike before, because there was a continuous ability called Stand Alone, the twin knights could fully enjoy the effect of increasing their abilities even if they were summoned separately.
Therefore, there was no harm in not summoning Karen at the same time.
However, there was a question as to whether it would be possible for Karuna alone to deal with those three…or three at the same time.
For now, Kang Seol decided to watch because Karuna’s will was firm.
“You know what?”
Shuro was talking to Karuna instead of Snowfall this time.
“That I am a special being.”
Karuna also responded without giving up.
“I understood that it was a special being.”
“Hehehe… Shuro is the child chosen by Bria. From the Church of Yeongsaeng… I was chosen. So….”
Four seals collided at the same time.
Karuna kept an eye on Biran, who used his ability for the first time.
Because the pushing ability that monster used was the most annoying.
[Biran uses favor.]
[The target gets closer to Biran.]
“karuna’s eyes sparkled with black light.”
Since the possibility that the monsters could use the same abilities was not ruled out, there was no great panic.
Shuro’s great sword swings sideways.
Karuna blocked it. Next, it’s time to counterattack.
The enemies were not the ones to watch that.
Bidon focused his attention on Karuna in order to shake him away. And something shoots out of Karuna’s hand.
Karuna struck Bidon’s eye with a dagger and rushed forward.
Karuna’s overall combat power is superior to Shuro’s.
Naturally, Shuro took defensive action until Bidon recovered.
However, Karuna did not aim at Shuro.
Karuna succeeded in cutting off Biran’s arm using his abilities first.
Shuro gritted his teeth and stopped Karuna’s onslaught.
“die! Die! “You must die!”
Shuro was in a unique position within the Eternal Church. The next generation who will lead the future of Yeongsaenggyo.
Among them, there are some talented people who have been given special powers. Shuro was one of them.
“I’ve never… never been like this before…”
Karuna blows off Bidon’s arm during the attack.
[Biran uses contempt.]
[Target is far from the rain.]
Touu -woong …
“Huh … Huh ….”
Karuna caught the posture as it was.
Karuna’s overwhelming victory in this battle.
Karuna was a knight who could not be defeated as long as he knew in advance what abilities his opponent had and prepared accordingly.
On the other hand, Shuro muttered quietly, as if he was greatly shocked by the defeat of the attack and defense.
“I… was chosen… why…”
Kangseol was optimistic about victory, but tilted his head when he saw Shuro’s condition.
‘But this guy is annoying.’
Shuro looked at Bidon and Biran in awe.
“Yes… there was a way.”
At that moment, Shuro opened his mouth wide and sucked in air.
No, to be exact, a shadow.
Biran and Bidon were sucked into his mouth.
Kangseol fixed his eyes on Shuro.
Shuro’s body began to be covered with shadows, just like a night raven.
“I… won’t lose.”
A memory engraved in Shuro’s mind.
“Shu, you were chosen.”
“Are you sure…?”
“Well, keep in mind that Bria chose only you out of so many children.”
That was both true and untrue.
All children who underwent such experiments died.
Only he survived.
An experiment to implant shadows directly into the body, which is expected to have potential.
Shuro was a survivor of the experiment.
The body’s ability to receive shadows was similar to breathing, and it did not die unless its head was cut off.
The leadership, including Bria, did not spare any support for them, saying that if they continue to grow well, these talented people will be able to fill the vacant position of Immortal.
There was also one more special thing about Shuro.
“Shu, the more you fight, the stronger you become.”
“What does that mean?”
“The shadow inside your body becomes accustomed to the other person’s movements. “It can remember the other person’s movements with senses that are much more sensitive than those possessed by humans.”
“Then… as long as I don’t die…”
“Yes, as long as I don’t die, I can defeat any opponent.”
Shuro returned to reality instead of the flashback where the noise occurred.
Snowfall thought as she saw Shuro transformed into a raven.
‘Is it a night crow? No, it’s a little different. That’s… a shadow that was forcibly captured.’
“Hehehe… I’m invincible! “Because I was chosen!”
Just do it yourself!
His greatsword split into two swords when the handle was ripped off.
Shuro, who absorbed Biran and Vidon, targeted Karuna. Shuro is much faster than before.
Shuro fiercely swung the sword in both hands. The speed gradually increased.
Shuro gradually falls into a trance.
Kangseol saw that and said something.
“It’s getting faster.”
That monologue was clearly heard even by Shuro. And it made me feel confident.
‘You can win! Because I’m getting stronger! ‘It’s getting faster!’
Bria said so.
If he doesn’t die, Shuro will become stronger.
Shuro did his best to move.
But something was strange.
‘Why… why… are we in the same situation?’
The reason was soon apparent.
[Karunaga enters the 4th stage of Moonlight Full Heaven, Black Moon.]
A pitch-black energy emanated from the body of the knight he was dealing with.
‘No… no! I… go faster… I’m a great kid… I should get praise from Bria…’
Am I slow now?
No, did the author become faster?
Shuro had a hunch.
You can’t beat that knight with just one leap. The moment he realized this, his natural fighting sense came into play.
This swing is a trick.
I activated the ability I had saved for the critical moment that would determine victory or defeat.
[Shuro uses Reverse Thinking.]
[The object and location he is looking at changes.]
A new ability gained by swallowing Biran and Vidon.
The feeling of Rook kicking away the pawn blocking his way and rushing towards the king.
Shuro shook off Karuna and rushed towards Snowfall.
“only you! “If only you die…”
“What if you die?”
“Only you… why…”
Shuro’s body was unable to move forward as if it were being held by a magnet. It felt like someone was holding my hair from behind.
Kang Seol faced him and said.
Shuro’s new model was dragged backwards as if it had been sucked into a hurricane.
And along with the black wave created by Karuna, the body was cut diagonally.
Shuro, whose upper and lower body had been cut off, screamed in agony.
“I’ll kill you, you b*stards!”
Shuro, who shouted as if trying to scare them, took a risk and used his ability.
[Shuro uses Contempt.]
[You become temporarily immune to all slowing and controlling effects.]
He threw himself off the cliff as if he were a deflated balloon.
I have to live. First of all… I have to live.
Survival instinct saved Shuro.
There was no chase, and I was barely able to crawl down the cliff with my hands.
the lower body regenerating before I knew it.
It was an unbelievable speed, but it was not without impact.
“Haa… haa… a monster… a monster. “I have to… inform Bria… I have to let her know…”
Shuro, who was staggering as if he was about to collapse, rummaged through his arms and opened his eyes round.
“The crystal ball… where did it go?”
* * *
“You’re good at lying.”
Snowfall laughed as she looked at Shuro, who had escaped in rags.
Karuna was still getting stronger at a much faster rate than he expected. This fight confirmed it.
Liona and Brispin were speechless at Karuna’s overwhelming majesty.
Chadorf also kept shaking his head, wondering if what he was seeing was a dream.
Snowfall walked towards them.
he asked Tzadorp, who had been hit the hardest.
“Are you okay?”
Chardorf said in surprise.
“Ah… ah… Fortunately, there is nothing broken… yo.”
“Hmm… no, it hurts like death, but I can move… yo.”
“… All right.”
Liona was worried.
“What should I do? “Who sent it?”
“What did he say?”
“So uh…yeah! That’s right… I found the statue.”
“It’s a statue… It’s Yeongsaenggyo.”
Brispin closed his eyes with a sad expression.
“If Yeongsaenggyo even targets us… the situation becomes more difficult.”
“But for now, let’s gather more information.”
Kangseol took out a bright crystal ball from her arms. Then he licked his dry lips with his tongue and said.
“This hand habit is more useful than I thought…”
